Exactly, if anyone here is without sin (as in, having NEVER broken a rule, policy or law EVER) then please, go right on ahead & cast the first stone.
I am NOT talking about those who knowingly fake their way into stores just so they can take their dog in, yes I think that we are all in agreement that this is wrong.
what I am not agreeing with is the adversity to people (me included) taking their dogs to "technically dog friendly" places even though they "arent allowed" (Not talking about Walmart here) I think they even should be allowed in resturants, beecause I mean I eat in the same house with my dogs & I havent died yet... we as a society IMHO need to get over ourselves. I have seen some people's hygiene practices & I have to say that any person who says that dogs are "too dirty" needs to look at their own species before saying that :/.
About the comment of "dragging my dog along" You make it seem as though it is a miserable time for them & they hate it ... when in fact, my dogs (cant speak for anyone elses, just mine) love going on outings with me, you should see them when i get their leashes, because they know they are going on a "car ride" to somewhere fun & exciting
though I did tear a stupid lady a new one when she rounded the corner at PetsMart (back when I was younger & a WHOLE LOT less patient) & actually tried to order me & my dog to move so she could get by with her appearently dog phobic kid, my response was: "**** you, lady, this is Pet'sMart, not Toy's R Us" LOL.
